HardCopy Stratix BSDL Files

Browse boundary-scan description language (BSDL) files by specific devices and choose the appropriate device package. The same BSDL file can be used regardless of speed grade or temperature.

Follow these steps to perform a boundary-scan test (BST) on Hardcopy® Stratix® devices:

  1. Download the generic Hardcopy Stratix BSDL file from the Altera® website.
  2. Generate a new BSDL file that is customized to your design by using the BSDLCustomizer tool available at www.altera.com/support/devices/bsdl/bsdl.html.
  3. Before performing BST, make sure that the nCONFIG pin is externally pulled low and that the nSTATUS pin is low.

Note to Table:

(1) The BSDL Files are syntax checked using these tools:
  1. JTAG Technologies
  2. ASSET Intertech - Agilent Technologies
  3. Corelis
  4. Goepel electronic
  5. Temento Systems
